DIJ-ITA - Donne Italiane del Jazz

The first platform of Italian women in jazz

DIJ-ITA, the first platform of Italian women in jazz, out from 1 March 2022
(Read the press release ITA version)

It is a useful tool both for musicians and event organizers, who can rely on it to learn about activities and projects of women engaged in the improvised arts sector and include them in their schedules, in order to guarantee an egalitarian and meritocratic representation of the Italian jazz scene.
It is a simple and effective tool, which meets the difficulties to find female jazz musicians, who lead or co-lead projects.
In fact, as it came out from the Contiamoci Research, female jazz players in Italy face two main problems: they are very few and less space in the media and promotion is given to them compared to male musicians. Therefore, Dij-ita would be a practical tool to make musicians and organisers an active part in this process. **The platform is free and constantly updated””.

DIJ-ITA provides two tools:

  • the form, directed to women Italian Jazz musicians or resident in Italy, of all ages, with leader or co-leader projects, orginal or not;
  • the database list, with all the proposals, available for cultural operators or everyone is interested in.

Thanks for your contribution!

Contiamoci

A survey on gender balance on the Italian jazz music scene

Contiamoci («let’s count ourselves») was born from an idea of the JazzMine artistic committee. It takes shape from the now urgent and common need to become aware, through the analysis of data and targeted actions that will follow, of the existence of issues related to the theme of gender balance in the world of music in general and specifically of jazz.
Contiamoci is a data collection, launched in 2020 and aimed at musicians in the jazz music scene, which aimed to give a portrait of equal opportunities in jazz in Italy. A questionnaire drawn up with the intention of investigating the aspect of gender balance in the world of Italian jazz, starting from the analysis of some important data such as: the professional path, the job opportunities, the number of bands one has been part of, the presence of women in bands and leadership roles etc. What follows is a report where some of the most interesting results that have emerged are presented.
